The Cave Star (どうくつのスター / Doukutsu no Suta) is the fourth level in the Star Road. it has a secret exit that turns the level into a Warp Star, just like most of the levels in the Star World.

The Level[]

Mario starts riding a Skull Cart, and you will notice a number above Mario's head (6 to be exact), and there is a Koopa Troopa also riding a Skull Cart. If you kill or pass the Koopa, the number above Mario's head will decrease, as the number indicates your position in the "race". This level is basically composed of the roller coaster tracks with some pits and 5 Koopa Troopas.

Secret Exit[]

To get to the secret goal point, you must be in first place (have the number 1 above Mario's head), the yellow blocks at the end of the goal will disappear and you will be able to go below the goal to get to the secret one.

Yoshi Coins[]

The level has no Yoshi Coins.
